We made it safe and sound to oz. It's right about noon on Monday as I write this, due to the magic of time travel. Kind of jetlaggy. Or, the Green Fairy Absinth Energy Drink I just drank (60% alcohol by volume, the alcohol in question being absinth) is messing with my brain. If I drink another I'll take a pic for you.
Haven't worked out connectivity yet, but I've managed to upload a few pics from the journey thus far. Hopefully tomorrow I can get back the pre-paid SIM I got when I was here in March. I've got little magic hardware SIM-fooler thingies for both my G1 and my iPhone 3G, so there's at least double the chance I can get some kind of only vaguely-overpriced Internet access.
